Misplaced sets its main focus on the author detailing his journey through adoption and the abuse he endured. Readers will likely find a particular interest in Buckley's experiences in the behavior modification school he went to, because the Academy at Ivy Ridge was featured in a recent Netflix docuseries "The Program: Cons, Cults, and Kidnapping".

This is the first book Buckley has authored. The book was written with the aim in mind to help the author in his healing journey while also hoping to help others with similar life experiences.

Buckley recounts his tumultuous journey from birth, marked by loss and traumatic changes that lead to the tyranny of an abusive father and the manipulation of the Academy at Ivy Ridge. Determined to reclaim his identity amidst the suffocating grip of coercion, Colin bravely challenges the forces that seek to mold him into someone he is not.

Despite enduring emotional and physical torment, Colin refuses to succumb to silence. With unwavering resolve, he defiantly asserts his autonomy, striving for reunification with his birth family while resisting the oppressive influence of his adopted father and Ivy Ridge. His story is a testament to the indomitable spirit that refuses to be extinguished, even in the darkest of circumstances.

Through Colin's narrative, “Misplaced” sheds light on the insidious nature of abuse and the importance of a parent prioritizing the well-being of children over the false promises of manipulative organizations.

Colin Buckley is a two-time combat veteran, father, husband, and artist. Colin’s varied life experiences, including being adopted at birth, two tours overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, becoming a truck driver, farming, and raising his four kids, have given him a sincere and shockingly raw voice behind his work.

Buckley has hopes that the book will help to raise awareness about the troubled teen industry. In a recent interview by the author's local newspaper he said “I was a ghost. I just shut up because I noticed everybody who’s loud, they got pinpointed and they had a harder time in the program,” in reference to the time he spent at Ivy Ridge.
